Blue Day — Sean “The Professor” Wang was laid to rest today, and the Bruin World will never be the same

38 is way too young to die.  So it is extra sad that the World lost one of the Best Bruins ever this Spring, as Sean “The Professor” Wang succumbed to heart failure.  Sean was a die hard Bruin, a UCLA grad and a UCLA PhD, who founded “The Den” student section, and attended more UCLA Sports events than probably anyone else in history.  He was also a very proud and outspoken Democrat, who constantly enlightened the World with facts and pertinent information.

Sean is beloved by everyone who knew him, and remembered as highly intelligent, passionate, and compassionate.  He will be sorely missed.  Here are some photos from his life, and, from the Visitation and the funeral, both of which were open casket (but I did not take close-ups, so don’t worry).  Interestingly, he was laid to rest WEARING HIS EYEGLASSES.  I guess his family wanted him to look the way he always looked to them in life, or maybe they just wanted to make sure he has perfect vision in the afterlife.  As per Chinese tradition, several items were burned, like MONEY (facsimile) so that he would have it in the great beyond.

[NOTE:  These photos are shared WITH THE EXPLICIT BLESSING of his Parents.]
